Rap trio August Greene, consisting of Hip Hop legend Common and producers Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins, has shared via NPR its self-titled album ahead of its scheduled Friday (March 9) release.
EPIC night.

The first-listen comes on the heels of Common and Andra Day’s anti-gun violence performance of “Stand Up For Something” that took place Sunday (March 4) at the Oscars. Common and Day’s work was nominated for “Best Original Song” for 2017’s Marshall.
